Japan Perl Association (JPA) came up with an innovative idea to raise money for The Perl Foundation from their annual event, YAPC::Japan.
To promote the online [2022 YAPC::Japan conference](https://yapcjapan.org/2022online/), the organizers chose to donate to TPF 5 yen per tweet that included #yapcjapan, and 300 yen per blog. Contributors raised 15,630 yen (just over US$100). What a great way to raise money and also to raise awareness of their event.
We understand JPA is planning an in person conference in Kyoto March 2023. Watch this space.
Thank you Japan Perl Association!
